Finally I was able to attend a hackathon, organized by AngelHack in Bangalore. I went with the idea of Debatr.
About an year ago I got this idea, a platform for debate. I was unable to spend time on this idea due to couple of reasons and this went into archive as many of my ideas. Fast forward a year, here I am. A product developed from scratch in less than 24 Hrs.
Online debating platform. It has 2 faces
- It gives the platform for everybody to create, browse, follow and participate on various debates.
- It acts as a commenting platform, with sophisticated API it integrates with existing content management applications such as WordPress.
Debatr helps to answer the following questions:
- Where your debate is heading?
- Who is winning / won?
- Whose comment is / was most relevant ? etc…
On every comment of a user, others will get to rate the comment as below
Awesome , Well said, Nice, Average, Diplomatic, Poor, Very poor, Unrelated, etc
Based on the ratings User will earn reputation and unlock various features.
I am taking this forward and will try to give my best. Your thoughts, suggestions and questions are welcome.
and Don’t forget to use Debatr :-)
